What does leave your child alone mean? Does it mean neglecting your responsibility to feed your child?
Of course not in a sense that you have to let your child go astray and let him/her go hungry. I believe you are not that dumb, and as a mom you are standing in your physical body you have a handful responsibility to be taken at hand.
You are not just a mom, but a human being in general with individual life purpose.
I believe there are many of you trying hard to give the best of everything for your child even willing to be in debt for the sake of giving your all to your child.
